    Announcement Upcoming Server Maintenance

    Money watch heads up!

    Check your local credit unions. At least two here in MI are offering introductory CD rates. American One is offering 6% on a 1-year, only caveat is at least $1k in new money. I heard there's one in northern MI offering 7.1%. Beats letting it rot in some savings account.

    Nikon Enlighten me in regards of the Nikon DX system, from D300 and up. :-)

    After having picked up a couple of Nikon 1s, a V1 and a J4, I am quite a bit fascinated by the output of those tiny rascals, but I dont find the files very mallable, quite the opposite, they break easily but even broken gives some pleasure in the results, so there is that. I have also heard...

    Micro 4/3 Is my shutter about to give up?

    Over the years I've had a stuck shutter on an EM1 Mki which needed a replacement and at the weekend I'm wondering whether my EM1 Mkii is sending me a warning. The following images were taken within minutes of each other - one that it is a bit of a surprise and the other what I was expecting...

    Should I suck it up a pay for Lightroom Creative Cloud?

    I've been using stand alone classic LR 6 on a very old macbook air for quite some time. Using older cameras that were supported in the older LR6, I've managed to get by even though its a little slow rendering 1:1 full size previews. Space was limited on the older macbook air, so I'd often have...

    Leica Generations apart: how does the 2004 Epson R-D1 hold up against modern tech?

    https://www.mpb.com/en-uk/blog/article/12520/ Before M I happened upon a nice deal on R-D1. I didn't take it because I was unsure about the platform.
